Tho Projocts For Annexation or Those Important Pacific IsIaudaDlBcussed by tho Ex-Attorney General Ho Sayo "It Is Certain to Come." "A San Fkanciboo, Sept. 2(5. Ex-Attorney General Thurston, of Hawaii, speaking to day of tho projects for tho annexation of the Islands to this country, said: "There Is a deep underlying sentiment in Hawaii in favor of annexation to the United States. Even tho native' Hawaiian paper, Kwsco, pronouueed in Its favor. This is tho time the Hawaiians have been in favor of it. It would bo going too far to say that tho sen timent as a whole is In favor ofaunexation, but there is a very strong undercurrent, and it is growing. It is belIovedithere that so far as the sugar business Is concerned, annexation would tiring tho Islands under boneflt of tho bounty law. Our sugar interests have been so demoralized by thoMcKinloy bill, involving as it does our labor problem, that there is a feeling that something must be done. It Is not thought that annexation of the Islands would bo in any way an infringement of. tho Monroe doctrine. Hawaii is directly in the path from Sau Francisco to tho Occident, and a straight lino drawn from tho end of tho proposed Nicaragua Canal to Hong-., Kong strikes tho islands square in the centre. I see by papers I have received and havelearned from correspondence from the island8,together with conversation with persons just arrived from there, that the sentiment for annexation is growing and there seems to bo a definite opinion that it is certain to come. Tho state ment that Queen Liltuokalani is favoring tho English in any way is an error." . . DAVITT GOING TO IRELAND. Ho Says Parnoll Will bo left Out of Irish Politics. Chicago, Sept. 20. Michael Davitt, the well-known Irish agitator, arrived here this morning and Is stopping at tho residence of Mr. Alexander Sullivan. Mr. Davitt is ac companied by his wife and two chiidron. To a reporter Mr.Davltt said that his trip was purely a private one, and had no connection-with politics. He said ho had spent five months in California for his health, in obedience to his doctor's orders. Ho said ho had no disposi tion to introduce the unfortunate domestic i trouble in Irish politics among his countiymen In America. "Wo will settle that in Ireland at tho next general election," said.Mr. Davitt, "and when it io settled, the settlement will leave Parnell out of Irish politics. I have been invited to speak several times since I came to Amoiica, but have deemed It my duty not to accept any 6uch Invitations for the rea son I havo given." Mr. Davitt is on his rond home. Ho said he did not believe a single one of Parnell's followers would bo elected at the next gen eral election. Tlio Now Liquor Regulations. The Commissioners In board meeting yes terday formally adopted tho new liquor regu lations prepared by Colonel Robert, a synop sis of which have already appeared in The Herald. Tho only material change made was to strike from the application affidavit of both wholesale and retail dealers the words "that the said bar-room is necessary for the accommodation of tho public." ,In going over all tho city laws Colonel Robert discovered that tho law closing wholesale saloons on Sunday was only applicable to tho city of "Washington and not to Georgetown or the county, and that there is no law which pro hibits wholesale liquor dealers from selling liquor to minors. To obviate this tho Com missioners will use their, .power of discretion to grant licenses to wholesale dealers whom they feel certain will not violate tho spirit of the law. Fractional Silver Instead of Dollars. Owing to tho fact that the coinage of tho standard sliver dollar was by law stopped on tho l6t of July (except that of the trade dollar bullion about $5,000,000 In all whiclIs now in progress), tho shipment from the 'mints of standard silver dollars now depends almost entirely on tho amount of silver certificates or Treasury notes presented f otfredemption. In the absence of ability to ship silver dollars tho Department in response to requisitions for silver coin is sending out largo amounts of fractional silver coin as the. most conve nient substitute for tho silver dollar". Better News Prom Chandler. Major Eugene F. Weigell, special agent, has telegraphed tho Secretary of the Interior from Guthrie, Oklahoma, that neither the location nor tho situation at Chandler is as bad as reported; that there Is enough of good laud for tho business portion; that tho water supply was only temporarily exhausted by the rushing in of 4,000 people with countless horses to water; that all is right now and tho howl comes chiefly from disappointed lot speculators.

IN EXTRAORDINARY SESSION. Qravo Charged to bo Investigated by tho Pennsylvania Senate. llAimismma, Pa., Sept. 20. ThlB evening a proclamation waB issued by Governor Patti son convening tho Senate in extraordinary session on Tuesday, October 18,1891. Tho preamble Bets forth that grave charges havo been mado against tho Auditor General and State Treasurer, most seriously reflecting upon the dl6chareo of their official ditties; that it is proper diligent inquiry should bo made to ascertain whether or not "reasonable cause" exists for their removal; that there Is a conviction in the public mind that they have been grossly inefficient, and entirely wanting in due fidelity; that if tho charges bo established tho Senate should take action looking to the removal ot tho officials. It is also sot forth that much of tho State money lost through Bard6ley would bo in tho treasury if tho Auditor General and State Treasurer had performed their duties with fidelity, and further that Bardslcy's refusal to disclose any information whatever as to the conduct of these officials has com pelled tho abandonment of proposed criminal prosecutions, at least for n time. I'rop&r In quiry by tho Senate, the Governor thinks, may develop evidence sufficient to satisfv its members that reasonable causo exists for tho removal of tho Auditor General and State Treasurer. This evening tho Governor also addressed a communication to Senator Smith, chairman of tho committee appointed to Investigate tho offices of the Auditor General uud State Treas urer, asking that he permit tho Attorney General to be present and participate In the further investigations of his committee.

The Florida Supreme Court will convene on tho 15th proximo, and the Governor will apply for u mandamus to compel compliance with the constitutional requirement providing that the Secretary of State 6hall attest all commis-' slons issued by tho executive.

Rumors were again current yesterday that , General Green B. Raum was about to resign his position as Commissioner of Pensions.' This time the gossips had fixed upon ex-Senator Blair as his successor. Inquiry last night failed to substantiate the story and those who should bo well informed say that even should General Raum resign, Mr. Blair would hardly fill tho vacancy.

WnY HE HASTENED TO DENY THAT HE OPPOSED IT. A Different Course Might Havo so An gered tho Gormnnu as to Causo a Schism in tho Church Already Dis cussing tho Next Conclave. Rome, Sept. 20. Tho Italian press con tinues to occupy itself with tho question of whero the uext conclave shall be held. As there has been a complete reconciliation between tho Vatican and tho French republic, and as the former has been charged with using influence against tho triple alliance, tho question of where tho conclave shall be held and what influence, shall control tho election of the next Popo becomes one of Eu ropean importance. In view of tho declara tion of Crispl in 1S78, that if tho cardinals should abaudon Rome ho would at once oc cupy tho Vatican, It does not seem probable that any serious attempt to hold the conclave elsewhere will be made. The note of the Vatican to the nuncios at Berlin and Vienna declaring malicious the report that the Pope had taken steps airainst the triple alliance, Is said to have Irritated greatly tho group who Intended that the Pope should become an active. opponent of the allianco. The note was well received in Germany and Austria, but it made a bad impression in France. Neither was it well received by the Vatican press in Rome, which maintains the necessity of intimate relations with France. The protests of the German Catholic press against any meddling of tho Vatican in poli tics and Its unanimous support of the foreign policy of Germany, shows tho danger that has been avoided. It Is gravely asserted that in the present state of European politics a dif ferent course from that taken by the Vatican might havo provoked a sentiment in Germany sufficient to cause a schism in the church. FIENDISH OUTRAGE. A DcfensolcPB Woman Whipped and Hor ribly Cut by Whlto Caps.. Indianapolis, Ind., Sept. 20. A special to the News from Birdseye, Ind., says: This county is once more disgraceu'by mob work, which is doubly disgraceful In that it is perpetratcd upon a defenseless woman Mrs. Harmon, a woman of rather loose character,, lived at Mentor, one mile west of here. Last night 6ho was visited by a body of thirty men, who tied her to a post near her house and applied fifty lashes to her bare body. After performim: their work thoy called upon another woman named Mrs. Freeman (of like character) and warned her to leave tho place within twenty four hours or they would treat her to the samodose. She immediately departed Then tho White Caps called upon Jacob Sapenfiold and ordered him to vfsit Mrs. Harmon, untie her, and publish to the neighbors on tho penalty of twenty five lashes, what they had done, and that they had whipped tho Harmon woman because of her bad name. When Saneu field reached tho helpless woman, he found her tied to a post, naked with the exception of ono undergarment, which was turned over her head, her body torn from head to foot as if by a knife, while aijross her abdomen was a deep gash twelve inches long and so deep as to leave the bowels exposed, and scattered around wero the, great hlckorv switchee with which tho woman had been flad. No one knows who composed the gang, nor whence they came, though nearly every citizen in town saw them by the lignt of the moon. Tho community is enraged that such an awful thing should have happened in their midst. Mrs Harmon and her daughter were whipped in Hirdseye two years ago, just beforo thoy moved to Mentor.
